VIVA MAGAZINE AW Manchester Edition

It’s that time of year again, when VIVA Magazine (Manchester and Cheshire’s premium glossy) gets published and distributed throughout the district in pubs, clubs, barbers and bars, showrooms and changing rooms and anywhere there is free champagne.
This issue marks my last with the magazine. I’ve come full circle, from writing the Xmas Partywear pages in 2010 to the Winter warmers this year. (Pages 35 and 37) I have loved working with the VIVA Team and wish them all the luck in the future. I’ll always be a reader.

You can also see a little more of me on page 47 for my VOGUE.COM/DirectorsOf.Com Best Dressed Male Nomination!

Henri Lloyd AW ’10 and then some…

Checks away! Me, Sara and her + one Rachel.

The obligatory logo pose.
I went to the launch of the Henri Lloyd AW collection in their Manchester flagship store the other night and was treated to food, drink, music and of course, fashion.
The night was set up to jointly aid the yachting brand’s AW launch and to benefit the Kirsty Club which is a charity set up by young Kirsty Howard to help benefit her and her friends at the Fancis House Hospice. So, there were plenty of Henri Lloyd’s best and most wealthy customers there to bid in the auction, buy raffle tickets and even the odd knit.
The food was one of the highlights for me because I hadn’t yet eaten and so I quickly made a close relationship with one of the lovely waitresses and her endless supply of thin water Crackers with lemon cheese whip and smoked salmon… or her sinfully greasy Bruchetta… oh and the Profiteroles that were so packed with cream it was almost indecent. All food was lovingly prepared by Stock Restaurant.
I was fortunate enough to bump into some fabulous ladies by the names of Sara Wilson of SeraLuxe and Anna Westerman of Viva Magazine who were documenting the event alongside me.
So, champagne in hand and two blondes on my side we began to browse the rails. These items caught my eye.


Pop T by Henri Lloyd Jeans Co. £30.00

Culford Roll Jumper by Henri Lloyd £150.00
The Alperton Jacket by Henri Lloyd £130.00
After some live music and the auction hosted by some Manc lass from Galaxy Radio we grabbed a goodie bag (and a very good goodie bag it was indeed) and teetered in the rain towards General Store for more drinks and mingling. Dead Legacy were launching their brand in the premium indie on Deansgate.
